Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) or neuropsychiatric symptoms occur in more or less every person with dementia at some stage during the illness. They often have a significant impact on caregiver well-being and vice versa – caregivers response to BPSD can impact on the well-being of the care recipient with dementia (Feast et al., 2016A). The relationship between caregiver and care-recipient factors when it comes to BPSD is complex and more detailed research is needed to be able to progress to more effective interventions and support.
